apologize for that. if you will, sir. >> sure, what i was saying is unfortunately, the obama administration has not made it a priority to prosecute felons who try to illegally purchase guns. in 2010, over 15,000 felons and funneltives tried to illegally purchase a gun an were turned down. out of those 15,000, the obama justice department prosecuted just 44. let me repeat the numbers. 15,000 felons and funneltives illegally trying to purchase a gun, the obama justice department only prosecuted 44. i'm introducing legislation to create a task force in the department of justice. we need to prosecute violent felons and fugitives and we need to go after them to protect ourselves against violent crime. we shouldn't be stripping away the second amendment right to keep and bear arms of lawful, peaceful citizens. >> lou: senator reid, the majority lead, called for a cloture vote at 11:00 tomorrow morning. you and a number of your colleagues also said you would filibuster should the need arise. is your sense that the need will arise? are you still committed to a filibuster of gun control legislation?

inspections for a risky workplace. while the number of inspectors has grown under the obama administration, osha just has 2400 inspectors for 8 million work sites. roughly one inspector per 60,000 worke workers. we talked last night about f fatalities from terrorism and gun deaths and we didn't talk about workplace. 3,000 americans died from terror attacks and during that same time. 335,000 americans died from the hands of a gun and over 60,000 workplace deaths. you would think on the day after one workplace fired up an entire town, the man that works for president obama, the day he went before a senate committee, after a factory explosion not inspected for almost 30 years, perez would be asked about it and you would be wrong. during the entire hearing no one saw it relevant to raise a peep about west or osha. they did find time to ask about a favorite right wing bugaboo. total questions about osha, zero, total questions about the new black party panther voter intimidation case, one. >> and i will talk about one who has covered workplace safety regulation more than any other journalist i k
. the report put out by the constitution project is critical of both bush and obama administration's. it includes former members of congress. this is 50 minutes. >> thank you for your leadership on the task force and i want to express my thanks to the constitution project, but also to all of my fellow task force members what they brought to the table in terms of experience, wisdom, public service really made a difference in the development of this project and important report. as jim mentioned, there's more than 24 findings and recommendations. we can't cover all of those this morning that we want to hit some of the highlights. we hope he will take the entire report, study it through and look at each of those recommendations. why is this report important? it's important because we as a nation have to get this right. i looked back in history to the time during world war ii that we in turn to some japanese-americans. at the time it seemed like the right and proper thing to do but in light of history, it was an error. as of today this report will hopefully put into focus some of the a
. that's already the case in about half the states. the state of missouri and the obama administration wanted a blanket rule allowing the blood tests without a warrant. thousands of people in southwestern pakistan were homeless today-- 24 hours after a powerful earthquake rocked neighboring iran. at least 700 homes in the mashkel area of baluchistan province were reduced to rubble. some 35 pakistanis were killed in the quake, and another 150 were injured. the pakistani army said it deployed several hundred soldiers to the quake zone to bring much-needed humanitarian relief. in the middle east, islamist militants fired at least two rockets from egypt's sinai peninsula into southern israel, adding to growing security concerns there. they targeted the resort town of eilat. but police officials said there were no casualties. meanwhile, palestinians in the west bank and gaza marked prisoner day, urging israel to release palestinian detainees. they waved flags and carried pictures of some of the 4,500 palestinians in custody. new zealand became the 13th country in the world today -- and the
had stagnant growth frankly throughout most of the obama administration and the leadership in the last five years. we need do better. >> host: why is it okay to spent billions of year on corporate entitlement who don't pay taxes. we pay for our entitlements wall street does not. >> guest: it's not okay. , i mean, frankly, we need to bring it in and change our tax code in a way that lowers rates for everybody and eliminate the big corporation. i do recognize, i think the caller -- the e-mail is correct. folks have paid in to social security and medicare deserve to receive those benefits. the problem is something is not done, then the programs over time have the risk of going away. >> host: on twitter wouldn't social security and medicare be in a better shape if wages were higher? >> guest: wouldn't social security and medicare be in better shape if wages were higher? yeah. that's right. one of the challenges we face is how do you get the growing economy going forward and that is up with of our big debate for the summer. republicans believe that we need modify our tax code and reduce rat
is available to answer those questions. on the issue of the obama administration, during the 2008 campaign, president obama criticized the bush administration's treatment of detainees. candidate obama promised to close guantÁnamo and to reject torture without exception or equivocation to the also criticized previous administration for executive secrecy, including repeated invocation of the state secret privilege to get civil lawsuits thrown out of course, and he promised to lead a new era of openness. the administration has fulfilled some of those promises, and inconspicuously failed to fulfill others. in some cases because congress has lost them but in other places -- block them. as mentioned earlier, i level of secrecy surrounding the rendition and torture of detainees cannot continue to be justified on the basis of national security. the authorized enhanced techniques have been publicly disclosed, and the cia has approved its former employees publication of detailed accounts of individuals and interrogation. ongoing classification of gerald document these practices serves only to conce
? >> there was a major investment in the clinton administration, in the bush administration, and the obama administration. it's been something there's been broip agreement on. i would note the head of nih in the bush administration has been critical of the impact of the cuts on sequester both in term of medical research and future economic growth. >> thank you. >> thank you, mr. chairman. thank you for being here, mr. secretary. i want to go back to questioning from the gentleman from georgia related to the limit on individual type of retirements. this would apply equally to men and women. >> it is neutral with regard to gender. do you think that women need less retirement income than men? >> i don't think this is a provision that says either men or women need more or less. it's a provision that the tax benefit should be available to a certain amount. and the amount is $3 million. >> this that case, i'm in at the loss on the pop. the limit is based on a gender-neutral contribution. and women live longer than men. annuity are more aexpensive. and this means that any cap on a tax advantage retirement plan
as secretary of state. i applaud the obama administration for ambitious negotiations on the important trade agreements you talked about -- the transatlantic trade and investment partnership, and the agreement with trading partners in asia. these negotiations hold a promise of boosting the u.s. economy with increased access to our largest markets, and stronger investments that would lead to more jobs. the economic potential is critical at a time when one in five jobs in our country are trade dependent. that trade is about more than tariffs. toope, we know, is critical help the united states with issues that cut across the foreign-policy perspective. asia is also key to several of our economic security interests, as you highlighted in your recent trip. it is critical we deepen economic ties to the ee you and but cannot lose sight of other critical missions, like turkey and russia. tackling some of our toughest geopolitical challenges will require a closer connection, i believe, to these nations. i praise you on your recent trip to turkey, where you have gotten turkey closer to resolving issue
pelosi. and how much was passed and what was done. >> bill: in that first -- obama administration. do you see -- maybe a better chance because of the political political -- let's see realities facing the republican party? a better chance on immigration? >> well, i do think there is a better chance on immigration. i think at one point they have to decide which one are they going to do. i think when the republicans woke up the day after the election and realized latinos voted, i think that they -- >> bill: hello! did they ever! >> i think they had to come to grips with that reality. and so i think there is a better chance on immigration. we'll just have to wait and see. i sit on judiciary. i sat through, as a matter of fact, our first hearing was about immigration and it went on all day long. and what was very clear that day was that they could handle immigration reform up to citizenship. we will make you legal residents but we just can't go that far. i think donald trump was the one who told the truth. he went to the cpac conference. what did he say? he said 11 million democrats.

reach. a third area of focuses is school safety. unfortunately, the obama administration in the past several years reduced funding for school safety by over $300 million. next to me are detailed the security our cools stkpwrapbts were cut $110 million in 2012. school safety initiative was cut $53 million in 2011. and the safe and drug-free schools grants were cut $184 million in 2010. this substitute restores funding for school safety. if the effort is to protect our kids -- and i know all 100 senators want to do everything we can to protect our kids. one of the most direct ways is to make sure there are resources on the ground protecting our kids. and so this bill would provide $3400 million in funding -- $300 million in funding, 30 million a year for ten years, to do exactly that, to provide funding for the secure our schools grants. a fourth area is improving the existing background checks as it concerns mental illness. if you look for a common theme among these mass murderers that we have seen recent years, one of the most disturbing things is we've seen person after person with
